Ask Tony: Mounting Tires to Wheels

Ask Tony

You got questions, I have answers. Feel free to ask any RC related questions; questions on tuning, on article cars, on racing or just to ask how I’m doing! I’ll do my best to answer all of them.


Hey Tony-
What is the proper method to mount and glue tires to wheels?

Hey Rich.

There are probably a half-dozen ways to answer this question, but I’ll share the most common one. In fact, our How To has a standardized method used to mount Short Course tires and this will work for any tires you are mounting. Just be careful when it comes time to glue. That CA is nasty stuff and can glue your fingers together (or to something else) faster than you can spell the words ‘RC Driver’. I would suggest picking up a set of CompetitionX Gloo Toobs to help eliminate this.

Thanks for contacting me!
